Cant imagine Garber will be okay with this whole fiasco dragging out into the playoffs and MLS Cup and his next State of the League address with all the negative publicity he had to endure last year.

I'm pretty sure Garber has a personal vendetta against the Crew and will do absolutely everything in his power to not get in the way of the move.

I think the best chance the Crew have is for the lawsuit to becoming threateningly real. I believe that will nudge the league toward saying 'forget it' before they're forced to hand over the books to discovery. Above all else, the league does not want their financials exposed.

GAME #17:  https://matchcenter.mlssoccer.com/matchcenter/2018-06-13-columbus-crew-sc-vs-atlanta-united-fc/recap

https://www.massivereport.com/2018/6/13/17462218/atlanta-united-end-columbus-crew-sc-unbeaten-streak-with-2-0-win-mls-2018


Columbus was riding a 9-game unbeaten streak (4-0-5) going into this match - which marks the halfway point of the 34-game MLS season.  Despite that unbeaten streak, the last three MLS results for the Crew were draws.  And with Atlanta coming into Mapfre leading by only three points, this was a golden opportunity for the Crew to tie Atlanta for 1st in points with a win going into the league's World Cup break.

But it didn't work out that way.  Mensah had a great chance on a header that went just wide off a free-kick in the 28th minute.  But instead it was Atlanta that scored in the 30th minute off a header from a corner-kick to go up 1-0.  The Crew pressed forward in the second half to get an equalizing goal, and had some decent chances at 51', 60', 71', & 76'.   But Atlanta's keeper Brad Guzan was up to the task and made some quality saves to keep the Crew scoreless.  In the 82nd minute, Atlanta scored an insurance goal on a counterattack to clinch the match.

So the Crew go into the break at third in the East with a 7-4-6 record.  They won't play again until June 23 when they travel to Los Angeles to face the expansion club LAFC.

Precourt has a lot riding on next week's Austin City Council meeting



Summer recess looms for Austin's City Council, and what it decides at its meeting in 10 days will directly affect whether the Crew SC moves to the Texas city by the 2019 season.

Calling it a ôvery favorable deal to the city," Precourt Sports Ventures and its principal, Anthony Precourt, have proposed a stadium at McKalla Place, a 24-acre, city-owned site.

If the deal moves forward, PSV has indicated the Crew would play the 2019 season at a temporary stadium site, according to the Austin Business Journal. The sooner a decision comes, the sooner Precourt can move forward.
